Cult Leader Books A New Tour, New Album Due Later This Year

cult leader

Cult Leader has booked a new US tour and is preparing to go into the studio to record album #2 this spring. The explosive hardcore metal act was forged from the ashes of the seminal Salt Lake City band Gaza, and they funneled their new found fire to form their new band and release last year’s Nothing For Us Here on Deathwish Inc. They are heading into Godcity Studios in Salem, MA with the legendary Kurt Ballou for a release due later in 2015.

From the Press Release:

Salt Lake City’s Cult Leader is a band that needs little introduction. After the early 2013 dissolution of their prior band, metallic hardcore mainstays Michael Mason, Casey Hansen, and Anthony Lucero were joined by bassist Sam Richards to form a brand new beast: Cult Leader.

Cult Leader released their debut, Nothing For Us Here, last April via Deathwish Inc. Now, the band will head to Salem, MA to record new tracks that will become their yet-to-be-titled sophomore full-length, due later this year once again on Deathwish.

More information coming soon. In the meantime, keep up with Cult Leader on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram.
